Winter Style Inspiration

With the recent reports of there being a ice blast to hit England sometime, I am so ready to break out the jumpers and coats already, so obviously I have also been putting together some outfit ideas for a colder winter and taking inspiration from street style looks on pinterest, featuring shearling jackets and faux fur coats and lots of layering, so here are a few looks I like at the moment.

Where do you get your seasonal style inspiration from?

Decorating your room at uni

I've just moved into my house for the second year of uni this week. I will have a bit more freedom to decorate my room more than I did in halls, which is exciting to be able to put up fairy lights and wall art. Also have candles in my room, missed being able to have a candle lit in the evening. I am going to keep my decor quite neutral but have a few brighter items like wall prints, cushions and a few little plants for a bit of greenery. I'm hoping to do a room tour or something when I've had chance to decorate how I like it. So here are a few ideas from pinterest if you are moving into halls or a house for university, or even if you want to change your own room up a bit.

Also there are a lot of checklists and tips out there,

Shop Suggestions

Wilkos - storage boxes, cleaning items, and glasses and cups

Asda - cutlery, dinner sets, and cups 

Primark - cheaper bedding, cushions and little decorations

B&M - found a message light box there for 7.99, also have good range of lighting

Ikea - basically everything really

Paperchase - don't need fancy stationary, but it helps! also cute photo frames

Hope this has helped with some ideas, and have a great time if your starting uni soon xxx

Interior Edit - Gallery Wall

Gallery Wall Inspiration

Think I'm definitely going to create a small gallery wall in my uni room for this year. I would start off with two bigger pieces, and then a few medium ones and smaller cards or prints. I like using a mix of framed prints, canvases and postcards pinned up with patterned washi tape, makes it look more put together I think.

Shop suggestions

Etsy shops - 1, 2, 3, 4

Where do you get art prints for your home from ? xxx

Nude Mood Board

Nude is a theme I have seen quite a lot, in street style looks and I have being using nude pieces in my polyvore sets recently too. So I have made a nude mood board from some of my favourite street style outfits to inspire me to make more sets.

Where do you take your style inspiration from at the moment?

Travel - Paphos, Cyprus

So I got back from my holiday to Cyprus a couple of weeks ago, think I definitely needed it after finishing uni for summer. We very lucky with the weather for all the ten days that we were there, nearly hitting 40 degrees in the first few days. Also having the pool by the villa was very useful, doing a good job of keeping us all cool. I managed to get a few snaps of the local area and other places when we went out for the day, and the bougainvillea in a few different colours. Which is pretty much everywhere, not that I'm complaining the colours of the flowers are really beautiful. 

 View of the valley in front of the villa we stayed in

 Stopped at a cafe for much needed ice cream stop and a red flower from the garden 

The Municipal beach view

Ice cream stop again! I got banana chocolate brownie from the Häagen-Dazs parlour

 Sunset from the last nights and the inflatable crocodile hanging with the strawberry doughnut

Would recommend - The Municipal beach, Pissouri and Alykes beaches and the areas of Coral Bay and the harbour in Paphos.

Have you been on a trip aboard anywhere this year, or planning a trip somewhere?
